HI, there,

Thanks again for the quick help and sorry for the late summary.

The Origional Question:

We have 2 identical HDs here, one is for the system and user files. The
other one is currently unused. I would like mirror the system disk to the
unused one. What's the best and safest way to do this ?!


The Answers:

1. Use Sun's Online Disk Suite (ODS) to do disk mirroring.
2. use dd or other dump/restore programs to duplicate system disks.
   This might be tedious, a carefully designed script would help a lot.

Thanks to following ppl for the helps.
